I mean heís very apparently murdering the man. Iím sorry I wasnít clearer. Friday a police officer was shot peacefully observing the safety of protesters and businesses. His color shouldnít be our toxic focus.

You want better cops!? Make them accountable the right way. Beating pale skinned business owners to death with ladders 2x4s and fists when they resist looting isnít anything but unloving anarchy.


Give me a link on people getting beaten to death as you describe. Also, acknowledge that it is not the protesters that are doing the destruction. There are many thousands of protesters and a very small number of looters, some of them white supremacists, all of them trying to take advantage of the situation. Conflating the protesters with them is disingenuous at best and racist at worst.

Toxic colorism causes people to be beaten to death on both sides, as I have seen in the past 5 days. We need to get with Gandhi!💖


COLORISM? Give me a break! Gandhi was fighting for the liberty and rights of brown people, btw. This whole "see no color" thing is fantasyland crappola that actively hurts people that have been victims of systemic racism.

When someone plays the knockout game on you because you seem to be white, thatís toxic colorism, same as if you were black.

Iíve got every color in me. My ancestors were slaves in this nation.

My husband defended our nation while people pissed on his ambulance and threatened him because he was a Jew. While Jews were beaten to death in his home city after one lone psycho from their neighborhood used a car to strike a darker complexioned pair of children.

Iíve been hurt by systemic bullying, as have my children because Iím shorter than 99% of women. I donít need to see anarchy over bullying in schools!

I can't see what you're quoting, but this whole "I have credibility because I'm not white bread" thing doesn't hold water. We can all play that. I'm Jewish. My wife is Native American. My kids are a mix. When people look white, they don't get treated the same way as people who don't. Many, many studies thow that. It is sad and sick and wrong that your husband has dealt with discrimination. We are on the same side- you should be joining the BlackLivesMatter movement- this is what it is about.

You said beating to death. Let's remember words have meaning. George Floyd was killed.

This is key. There are many, many thousands of people protesting police brutality, and there are also a few people, some of them white supremacists, some of them not, who are taking advantage of the situation to cause mayhem and destroy stuff. It's that second category that is the problem, not the first.


there is no white supremacist involved in these riots, they are purely led and organised by alt-left extremists like ANTIFA, BLM and lots of criminals

Did you not catch the part where so-called ANTIFA tweets that all your alt-right folks were freaking out about were traced back to white supremacists? It's been all over the news that boogaloo bois are pulling shit.

Systemic police brutality against black people is a much bigger deal than some obscure game like that. If you can't see this, and are actually equating the two, then I don't know what to say.

You will find that in the forum, a lot of things are said to distract attention away from the actual thread topics. It's a way for some to have threads locked.

All opinions matter in this thread about freedom of speech. Some just don't carry any weight depending on who they come from.
